DJ Spinna album illustrations

 This was a great series of character based illustrations I executed for New York's DJ Spinna, and Female Fun Records. Each piece was a different mix that had to have a specific visual theme. From Hip-House, Reggae-Dub, Brazilian, and a tribute to Quincy. The character of Spinna remained in the same posture but changed in specific outfits. The challenge was to make him look at home in each scene, cruising through with boxes of records. Using my own hand writing as the font and rendering in ball point over acrylic to keep that grimy rough look, is exactly what he wanted.
